I have a QUICK fun project for you all today!
This is a little brag/photo book you make out of one 12x12 piece of card stock!
Take your 12x12 and cut 3-4 inch strips. Score at 4 & 8 inches.
Accordion fold the paper and join them together by overlapping the last and the first flap on each piece. I then cut the inserts for each flap and they measure 3 3/4 each. You don't have to do this step but I think
it really adds a finishing touch and will make a nice backdrop for your photos.
I rubber stamped them (gosh this was fun - I don't stamp as much as I used to and it turned out great!)
to add a little color. I ran a 8x11 piece of colored paper through my printer and used my
computer to type the words "special memories" and "Mimi's brag book".
You can add any words your want and really personalize your book!
I added a couple of pearls in the center of the flowers and used (my fav) black and white ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I attached the ribbon with an adhesive strip on the front of the book, but then it just wraps around the back so you can tie it on the side.
Seriously, this took no time at all! Whip out your paper and trimmer and see what you can create!
Invite me to your blog because I'd love to see what you did!
